    Is rock'n'roll officially dead?

    hey i was thinking...what happened to rock'n'roll? there were always these huge rebel bands around starting with , the stones, black sabbath, led zepplin, the ramones, the sex pistols, iron maiden, metallica, gun'n'roses, oasis, pearl jam, nirvana, u2 even, etc...

    now, all we hear on the radio is a bunch of pussy, sell-out, whiny commercial "rock". it seems like the whole spirit of rebellion is pretty much gone. am i the only one who notices this?

    i just turned 25 a few months ago, and like, everything i hear in the rock realm that's recent, just plain doesn't interest me. is this some sort of quarter life crisis shit with me, or is there really no interesting rock music around anymore?

    You're getting old. Pretty soon you're going to be saying things like, "Back in my day..." and "Get off my grass!".

    The type of music that you're looking for his out there. You can even find some of it in the more mainstream music scene. But to find more of it, you'll need to get off the beaten path and start looking at some of the indies.

    For example, there's no way you'd ever see Flogging Molly on the top 40. FM isn't the type of music that you're looking for, but it's what I like. And you can find the music that you like, too.

    no.

    And don't listen to the radio. They have shitty music selection that are geared towards the mass market, and advertising dollars

    Rock n Roll is far from dead, its just the shit they play on the radio isnt rock.

    Check out some Aynsley Lister and tell me that rock is dead. He's a young guy, and he's playing stuff that appeals not only to me, but to my Dad and his mates who are 50+.

    Ian Parker is another one, great Bluesrock guy.

    Rock is dead to the mainstream. There is soem awesome rock music out there but you won't see it on MTV or hear it on the radio unless you have XM/sirrus radio.

    There are almost no rebel bands out there. The formulas have been figured out for what sells music to the masses, and thats what we hear in the mainstream. Every now and then a band comes along that is good, and then there are 10 bands just like them in less than a year.

    The culture has changed, and this is the age of rap music. For us few true rockers still left, we have to hang around the underground and keep our ears open for good rock music. Its out there, but you have to search.

    These things go in cycles... Before the whole Seattle sound came up in the early 90s, rock was pretty dead to the mainstream too.

    Think what a lot of popular 80s music was like. It was horrible. We had a good run in the 90s, so now we are going through the crappy part of the cycle.

    It will change though and it will get better... just think of all the people that are complaining about music today. We are a huge market and we are ready for the next musical movement to come.

    So it's not dead... it's just in hibernation.

    No. Its obvious that you write on a second grade level. Don't give me that broken keyboard bullshit either. You typed three periods when it was not needed in that part of the statement, and then you didn't put any periods when they were needed.

    This is what the sentence should have looked like.

    No. Its obvious that rock music is dead. Not many people listen to it anymore, and most of the young people don't like it.


    By the way, you are wrong. There are just as many people listening to rock music now as there were 20 years ago. The difference is that Rock music isn't making the record companies as much money as rap and pop music, so you only see rap and pop on MTV, and on local radio stations. Most rock fans are listening to music produced over the last 30 to 40 years, where as young people are too dumb to have developed a sense of individualism, so they buy whats cool today. I am still listening to many of the same CDs I bought 15 years ago, and I am pretty sure many other rock fans are doing the same.
